A SICK child rapist who got an 11-year-old girl pregnant whinged about not being able to go shopping as he was caged for 24 years.
Robert Cronin was slammed for his arrogance after his young victim told a court how the monster had destroyed her life forever.
The evil 34-year-old spun a bizarre web of lies – claiming the girl got pregnant after wearing an item of clothing he used while performing a solo sex act.
Cronin, from Niskayuna in upstate New York, was jailed for 24 years after he admitted raping a child under the age of 13 in August.
He was given a further sentence of up to three years for lying in court, which will run concurrently.
The court heard harrowing evidence from the girl, who has since given birth to the computer worker’s child.
Prosecutor Michael Nobles blasted Cronin, saying: “An 11-year-old girl gave birth to a child because of his selfishness and he’s mad he can’t go to malls.”

Cronin’s crimes were exposed when a call was made to a child abuse hotline made in November 2018 – nine months after the rape took place.
He was arrested and charged in January this year.
The girl and her baby are safe and are being cared for, social services confirmed.
